Microsoft has released an unprecedented number of free tools to help you learn the new Office 2007 interface and get you up to speed without leaving your desk.
What's New There are many ways that you can start learning how the new Office 2007 differs from Office 2003. Here are just a few on-line guides, demos, and tutorials that will provide a great start:
Interactive Guide from 2003 to 2007 Wondering where your favorite 2003 toolbar commands are located in the new 2007 ribbon interface? Or just want to explore the rich, new design with a little guidance? Microsoft developed a visual, interactive reference guide to help you quickly learn where things are for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. These interactive guides can be viewed on-line or downloaded so that they are always available to you. Not sure whether you want to download this or not?

Microsoft Office OnLine The new Office Online web site contains an area for Downloads, Clip Art, Templates but what you will find most useful is the Help and How-to area of the site. Help and How-to provides a variety of training resources. View the demo to get familiar with this web site.
Self-paced Training Courses Microsoft publishes a series of self-paced training courses that use Flash, audio, text, and interactive elements to teach all the basics, and some of the more advanced features, of the Office 2007 programs. These courses are organized by product and many of them have Quick Reference Cards that you can print out as a job aid. Some of the free courses provided cover basic training for the ribbon, basic training for efficiency tools (mainly Outlook 2007), basic training for graphics (mostly having to do with PowerPoint), and basic training for information analysis (mostly Excel). To get the most out of these self-paced training courses, read the overview of how these lessons work.
Getting Started Add-ins If you would like your training to be available from within the new programs themselves, download and install a "Get Started" tab for Word 2007, Excel 2007, or PowerPoint 2007.(Contact your technical support representative if you need assistance.) Commands on this tab give you easy access to free content on Office Online, such as training courses, video demos, and other Office Online content designed to help. Office Online Community discussions are also available directly from the Get Started tab.
As you can see above, the first button on the Get Started tab is the Interactive Guide. This button links you to a web page that describes the guide and another link to view it. If you downloaded the guide earlier, you can access the guide from you computer and not from this link to the Web.
Microsoft Webcasts & Podcasts There are Microsoft live and on-demand webcasts available on a wide-variety of Office topics.
